So many people downloaded and played Trials Evolution when it launched that they managed to crash the game’s servers.
Around 100,000 people downloaded and played the game when it launched earlier this week. The servers simply couldn’t handle the amount of high scores being uploaded.
“The stress on the leaderboard servers became extremely severe late last evening,” RedLynx told Edge. ”For a while, the leaderboards were in read-only mode, then couldn’t be read at all. Microsoft worked quickly to deploy more hardware and the situation seems to have stabilised.”
“We apologise for the inconvenience, and obviously we’re working closely with Microsoft’s backend team to improve the situation and prevent this sort of thing from happening again,” the developer added.
